I have my first Year 12 Creative in a week, and I would like some feedback on my setting, and how the character feels around the surrounding. I'm attempting to create a very "homely yet sinister" atmosphere behind a dark plot line. Here is the opening paragraph: My hands felt cold, stone cold, at the sounds of blaring sirens and footsteps, hammering away at the marble floor, the door rattling in sync with the footsteps. I stood back, precariously close to the coffee table; it resembled a swan, and occupied most of the living room, giving life to the otherwise empty room. The gushing wind from the open window echoed softly, its cold touch lightly brushing my face. I took a deep breath as the sound of silence began to fill the room. Scattered pieces of origami swans gracefully across the room, its light weight giving way to the exuberant wind. The majestic purple glinted in the moonlit night, the beak reflected the light. Several seconds passed, and another loud rattle came from the handle. I averted my gaze back to the handle, my hands began to shake uncontrollably. Were they out to get me? Thoughts and feedback are appreciated. Thanks!
